Maybe it’s the glasses, but by brain seems keen to amuse me by replacing words with near matches on first glance. I saw the ‘Designated Hitter’ piece as ‘Designated Hitler’ and instantly got a vision of people arguing over who got to be the Hitler for the day.
“Aaawww man, but you got to be the Hitler last time!”
My favourite was walking past a poster in London and cracking up because for an instant it read ‘Dove’s new masturbating creme’ - ‘moisturising creme’ was much less insteresting. Yes, I did get a lot of funny looks.
I figured I can’t be alone in this, so what’s your best misreading - or mishearing if you’re more prone to those?
